  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned)
  • 2 cups pecans finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Poke holes in the sweet potatoes with the tines of a fork. Roast sweet potatoes for 30 minutes, directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet until soft and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, while sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the crumble: Add oats to a blender. Blend on high until a coarse oat flour is created. Add to a bowl. Add pecans, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup honey, and 1/2 tablespoon oil and stir. Reduce heat to 375 degrees (when the casserole is assembled, the dish will go back into the oven). Allow sweet potatoes to cool.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel the sweet potatoes, discard the skins, and put the potatoes in a bowl. Add milk, vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons honey to sweet potatoes. Mash.
  • Put the mashed sweet potatoes in an 8 x 8-inch baking dish or a casserole dish. Add the crumble in an even layer on top. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes until the crumble has hardened and browned on top. Enjoy!

  1. This was VERY good. I do not like real sweet, sweet potatoes and this recipe nailed it. I did, however, double the vanilla only because I love the taste. Instead of roasting the potatoes in the oven, I made them in the microwave. I thought the amount of topping was way too much though so next time I will probably half the amount. All in all, delicious. I give this recipe 5 stars
